Now could quite possibly be the most beautiful time of year in Maine. True, the bathing-suit, sun-drenched beach days of summer are behind us. But this time of year, God does something amazing – he becomes an artist.
Every fall, the trees here burst with color. The sky becomes an liquid, unmatched blue. The weather is cool and dry. The energy is relaxed, as if nature is taking a much-needed breather after the bustling days summer.
Here in Kennebunkport, at the Captain Lord Mansion, our leaves are just as lovely as the ones seen above. We highly recommend coming to see them soon, as the peak season for fall foliage is nearly upon us.
There are several drives we can recommend, for ultimate viewing of the brilliant palette. Route 9 from Kennebunkport to Cape Porpoise is one, where you will skip along the coast line among the trees and the seas. We have another printed itinerary that takes you around beautiful Sebago Lake; Bev and I love this inland drive where few tourists venture. Or, take a trip south, along Route 1 south, where not only will you get some breathtaking views of the maples as they change (similar to the one below), but you will also have a chance to stop in at some of our really quaint antique stores and hunt for one-of-a-kind treasures.
Of course, if you’d rather just sit among the falling leaves on our side lawn and just rest, we can offer you a number of comfy colorful thinking spots within our memory garden.
Won’t you come join us and “fall” in love with natures artwork?
